and "the washington post" says it might be a strong political move. let me quote "the washington post." by taking a volunteer cut in his own pay, no matter the size or amount, president obama is forcing the sequester back into the news and back to people's minds at least for a day or two. >> i think it could backfire, though, because what the president wants the sequester to be appealed. he thinks the cuts are too draconian and by taking his own pay cut it sort of implies, hey, look, we're all going to take these cuts. it sort of implants the sequester as not something that is going to be repealed. >> angela, you're nodding your head. you don't agree with that? >> i don't agree with that. it wasn't just the president but it was attorney general holder and secretary hagel and secretary kerry. i think what they are saying is these are tough but we don't want the hardworking americans that are in these regular government jobs to be suffering the most from the sequester. >> what it has not been is any republicans. i want to see when they are going to take a cut because they caused the cut

in a show of military might. dan lothian is live from washington. we're hearing this headline, dan, but at the same time we're also learning from the obama administration they have this so-called playbook for north korea. >> that's right. that was first reported by the "wall street journal" now independently confirmed by cnn that there was this playbook whereby the north korea did one thing, then the u.s. would react in a certain way. now there's this concern though, according to one official that perhaps they may have pushed north korea's leader too far. so they're dialing things back just a bit. keep in mind over the last several weeks the u.s. really has been beefing up its presence in the region. twice last month the u.s. said b-52 bombers that fly over south korea as part of what we are told is a routine mission. there were navy ships sent to the region and then just yesterday, of course, we find out that this missile defense system will be sent to guam. a lot of concern because many u.s. officials really don't know kim jong-un. they believe that he is unpredictable. perhaps c
